Within two miles of my house someone has honey bee hives. And these bees really like sedum. This sedum is Matrona, but the kind doesn’t seem to matter. I have Neon, Autumn Joy and several creeping sedums that all have had honey bees on them nonstop the past week or so . . . along with the lovable bumblebees, of course.
Sedum are easy to grow, but they do require full sun to grow well. I’ve had a few die from overwatering, too. That’s one downside to a sprinkler system: Everything gets wet, and since sedum are succulents, they resent too much water once they’re established. The trick is planting them away from the sprinkler heads.
So if you haven’t tried sedum in your garden, you should.
The bees will thank you.
And they need all the help they can get.
